I may have lost my mind at the moment so any quick idea would help certainly....

So I have variable which is in the TIME13.3 format whereas  I have another variable which is in numeric format ....Now I need to put a WHERE clause however before that need to convert TIME13.3 format variable to the numeric format I tried PUT function however that doesn't seems to work...quick thought please?

May be you can use a similar code like the code I have given below.

MYTIME = INPUT(PUT(TIME1,BEST12.),$40.);

TIME13.3 is a numeric format, so your variable is already numeric (seconds of the day) and can be "converted" by simply changing its format.

I suspect that yoout other variable has a specific sequence of digits; could you give an example?
